Indexes represent the average performance of a group of shares, usually the largest shares in a market ranked by capitalisation (total value).

Each index will tend to track the overall performance of the bulk of the total value of that market. Products based on indexes, like spread betting, Contracts for Difference or Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) represent a good way for investors to proxy an entire market without having to buy individual shares.
